Where did you get that impression? svn treats text and binary data the
same regarding deltas.

This is a reccurring request. The usual answer is: don't store files not
needing revision control in a revision control system, but use file
sharing instead. I can understand the convenience though, to have that
kind of file sharing integrated, so you get those files in place without
extra work. Scripting may help here.
